Customer Question
Hi, we have...

Hi, we have a older manual thermostat that we cannot seem to set.
Model RTH 221B1000.

Contractor's Assistant: Just to clarify, do you think this is a larger HVAC problem, or something specific to the thermostat?

Specific to the thermostat

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes, we have a multi zone house and all the other thermostats are fine. Just can't set this one

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't think so
